An impressive book with a great title, written with honesty and grit. I see it as the first modern book of its kind, informing how Africans are managing their day-to-day affairs with well-documented facts of using their own business acumen and intelligence that's working in the absence of Government-Aid. A real insight and interviews of Entrepreneurs and "Pro-Actives" using their own Master-plan, which the author has coined "Kanju" method of business.
This Book cuts-through the negative Perception continuously churned-out by the Western media.
This book should be an Exemplar of the real modern Africa.
